  1. Don't spend your money on How To Train Your Dragon, no matter how much you enjoyed the movie. You can easily do better than this terrible, movie-tie-in, mad grab for cash.
  2. Although based on a neat idea, this movie tie-in is hampered by a severe lack of content. A broken battle system and some extremely tedious gathering of items make How to Train Your Dragon hard to recommend to anyone.
  3. Yet another licensed yawn-fest where neither missions nor collecting of silly items is any fun, at all. Not even for the younger gamers, sadly.

    How to Train Your Dragon is just so "bleh." You can make a fun game for kids, but this isn’t one of them.

It takes a little while to get good at flying, my 7yo son took to it immediately with great skill. It took me longer and was much clumsier, but within and hour got pretty fluid and elegant in style. We played this game on the PC/Mac laptops for years on the Cartoon Network website, and loved it. This is almost a direct translation to the XBOX (and other game console) platform. The advantage of this platform is that you can play together.

    If you love Hiccup, Toothless and friends you can enjoy playing games together (multiplayer-local) and flying around Berk. There are achievements and incentives to keep playing and getting more adept at flying. We probably won't play this game for years more, as there are others that are more captivating long-term but it is fun especially after just seeing the movie, which was excellent all round.

It's a shallow "Monster Rancher" style game where you explore some of the locales from the film, collect items and well..train your dragon for the arena. It's passable graphically and the mechanics are there despite some camera issues in explore mode. Definitely worth a look if you or your kids are big fans of the film. Full Review »
